The turret standing three floors high is one of the seventeen experimental houses in Almere’s 'De Realiteit' district.
The Noorderplassen lake is within walking distance. You can swim from the beaches here and dine at the The Boathouse restaurant.
On the other side is the Lepelaarsplassen nature reserve with its breeding colonies of birds and bird hide (about 20 minutes' walk). A five minute drive along the S101 will bring you to the Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve, where the 'The New Wilderness' documentary was filmed.
The centre of Almere is also just a five minutes' drive away. Supermarkets can be found at the Waterwijk-West bus stop, or are easy to reach by car in the Waterwijk-Oost area.
